The LaFayette Place Mall was an urban shopping mall and development in downtown Boston, Massachusetts which originally had a 500-room hotel with 300,000 square feet (28,000 m2) of retail space. As the economic environment in Boston declined, it was closed in 1989 after it never achieved greater than 60 percent occupancy. The interior mall had an unusual circular hallway arrangement which never became popular with shoppers. Patriot Games LLC sold the mall after buying it in 1997 and redeveloping it as predominantly office property.[1]

The mall was anchored by a flagship of Jordan Marsh. It closed as a mall in 1989.[2]
